Hyperamylasaemia may occur following abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture and its use as a prognostic indicator has been suggested. However, the isoenzyme responsible for the rise in serum amylase has not been investigated. In this study, isoenzyme analysis was performed on the serum of patients noted to have a raised amylase from their routine biochemistry samples. Individual cases were then reviewed regarding clinical course and outcome. The pancreas has been thought to be the predominant source… CONTINUE READING
